this morning. erin mcpike is in wichita, kansas. jennifer delgado is live at the cnn weather center in atlanta. erin, let's start with you. how's it looking? >> reporter: well, it's not quite as heavy as it was last hour but it's still pretty heavy. we've seen snow plows go by here about six times in the last two hours and the roads are still covered. also we've got this ruler, we've been measuring. about an hour ago it was 4 inches. now we're at 5 1/2. but soledad, here's the interesting thing about this storm. we're calling it a thundersnow. there's thunder and lightning that goes along with it. i wish it would happen when i'm out here but i think we've got video, so let's play that video. i don't know if you can hear it. and that's why we're calling it the blizzard of oz. we've seen that a lot on twitter from some people in kansas, so we want to name this storm the blizzard of oz, soledad. >> i thought thundersnow was dramatic enough. let's get right to jennifer d delgado on where the storm is going to head next. >> right now we are watching the storm system and, soledad, this is awe huge o
the midwest, i know. >> everyone takes it very seriously and stays safe there. thanks, erin. >> right now it looks like a winter wonderland. >> the storm is stretching from the dakotas to houston, texas. while it dumps snow in the north, it will pour heavy rain over new orleans and montgomery, alabama. and it could kick up tornadoes along the gulf coast as well. let's get right to jennifer delgado. she's in the weather senter in atlanta monitoring all of this for us. good morning. >> good morning, guys. you can see on the radar we have a lot of action out there. we have thunderstorms out there. you can see the lightning. line of storms developing through parts of texas as well as snow. we saw the live shot. the snow coming down even more on the way as well as that wintry mix affecting areas along interstate 44. so let's break this down for you. what can we expect today? a big mess out there if you're going to be traveling. as we go throughout the morning now, what you're going to see is the snow intensifying. as we move to the north through areas like celina, we're seeing the snow really
've got this extreme weather for you. erin, you've been there when the snow first started to fall and when it stopped and now comes the cleanup. >> reporter: well, and right now, today, it's a lot colder here this morning than it was yesterday. it's about 14 degrees. we hope our fingers don't freeze off. if you can see behind me, they're already starting to dig out. we've got that. now the national guard is patroling for stranded motorists throughout the state. wichita, where we are now, got a near record snowfall, 14.2". their record is 15.2". so, most of the states, schools are still closed today. although the airports are now open, starting to dig out there, too. believe it or not, what they're calling the blizzard of oz here in kansas is a welcomed development for a lot of residents. i spoke to one yesterday, kristen woodburn. here she is. >> it snows so infrequently here now, we've been in a really bad drought for several years. really, really hot temperatures in the summer and just no moisture. so, we're thrilled to see snow, ice, whatever moisture we can get. >> reporter: this is th
the circumstances of his death. >> you know, erin mclaughlin joins us from london. what does this discovery of richard iii mean? >> hi, christine. historians really think this is an opportunity to rewrite history. these are the culmination of months of detailed analysis, including dna testing, radio carbon testing, environmental sampling, and not only tell us beyond any sort of reasonable doubt that this was, in fact, richard iii, but they begin to paint a picture as to who this man was. he was 32 years old when he died. he was suffered from severe scoliosis or curvature of the spine, died at the battle of bosworth due to blunt trauma at the back of his head. his naked body strewn to a horse, brought to a grave and hastily dug and thrown in there without a shroud or coffin. we hope this will paint a different picture of richard iii, one that challenges shakespeare's portrayal of a i'll ha vile and evil monster. >> you hear of this story at the tower of london, how he killed his nephews, the little boys. and this was a medieval time when these were the things that dukes and kings did to each
republicans are at this point so to si erin degree. curt, we went back into the archives. fewer than 2% of cabinet nominations have been rejected since 1789. john tower rejected for a defense secretary in 1989. you have to go back to 1844 to james porter, who was rejected for secretary -- >> he was robbed, though. >> where was he during benghazi? >> this is the united states senate, which part of its brand is this civility, and who are they doing this to? a guy who was a republican senator four years ago. i've decided it's a bit of joe lieberman derangement syndrome. a heiretick from your own party, once he is playing for the other team, it drives you crazy, and it's driving the republicans crazy the same way joe lieberman drove the democrats craze where i. >> the psychodrama of a party that's so very angry at one of its own. i'm not a psychiatrist, but i play one on television, and it would seem like -- it would seem like this sort of, you know -- he is a heiretic, and, therefore, he must be punished. this is not the first sort of parliamentary high jinx order of the day for this cong
56% since then. today reported another strong quarter with erin earnings per share better than a penny better than expected. and outback steakhouse performed very well. but the stock sold off 5% because the company saw commodity inflation in the quarter. i think bloomen remains risky as higher gas prices and the end of the payroll tax holiday put the squeeze on the consumer at thaend at the same time as we fear higher commodity sti costs. stock trades at a discount but it feels -- like when you eat unwould've those blooming onions. i like outback steakhouse. i think shu wait for a pullback under 16 a bit more than a buck below where it is now before pulling the trigger but if it got there unlike so many people who say wait for a pullback and then when it pulls back they run, i want you to buy it. i have some tweets here. mad tweets. and yeah, look, i still answer as many as i can. you go there you see all those followers, i'm always trying. sometimes i favorite people. my daughter told me how to favorite people. our first tweet comes from @stevespraycal. his tweet says, "jim bo
with the kidnapper, jimmy dykes, who later was killed. >>> this evening, cnn's erin burnett is taking a look at this very story, digging deeper on this amazing operation to rescue this young ethan. what are you guys looking at? >> we have the kind of minute by minute of what happened and it is pretty incredible, when you just see that picture there of the pipe and how they were communicating with jimmy lee dykes who had taken 5-year-old ethan hostage for nearly a week. sort of tick by tick of exactly what happened. it's a pretty incredible story. and we will be joined by the principal of ethan's school, a man who knows the little boy well. we will find out more about ethan as we have reported, he had suffered from asperger's and was obviously struggling this past week. and we will be talking about the big vote for the boy scouts. i know you all were talking about this. we have the numbers on just how influential mormons are in the boy scouts in terms of money and in terms of the number of boy scouts and it's pretty stunning. this decision really could come down to the mormon church. back to
contributor. and erin is a staff writer for salon.com. i welcome all three of you. thanks for being here. >> happy sunday. >> robert, i'll begin with you. let's take a listen to majority leader eric cantor on nbc's "meet the press." here it is. >> every time you turn around, the answer it to raise taxes. he just got his tax hike on the wealthy, and you can't in this town every three months raise taxes. again, every time, that's his response. we've got a spending problem. everybody knows it. >> robert, president obama is not just calling for tax hikes. he said this weekend, he wants spending cuts, entitlement changes, tax reforms. so why all the rhetoric from the gop when the stakes are this high? >> look, this needs to be a comprehensive conversation, not just about tax cuts and revenue, but also about smart government. both sides are in their corners, and they're both obviously speaking to their choirs or speaking to their base. the question becomes, what are we going to do? since we have this conversation, it seems like, every three months, about sequestration, about the fiscal cliff a
icy to dull pain, hot to relax it away. power past pain. >>> erin burnett is going "outfront" with more on the cruise ship triumph and the first lawsuit filed. you knew this was coming. >> absolutely. it only took about 24 hours. we have the first lawsuit filed against carnival cruise lines. and also, get to the heart of the investigation which matters not just to the 4,000 people who were on board the carnival "triumph" but the 10 million americans that cruise every year. and that is, kate, how bad was this fire? if it was a bad fire, that's a very serious thing. fit wasn't bad, how come it was still able to take out five of the six generators, each of which are the size of a bus? on this ship? both of these questions are very troubling. we're going to be talking about that, about that lawsuit, and get some answers on that coming up at the top of the hour. back to you. >> a lot of questions still remaining in that investigation. "erin burnett out front" at the top of the hour. >>> here's a very different story. maybe you have a disaster kit, bottled water, canned food, flash
of the many controversial man arcs. this 500-year-old skeleton is that of the long lost king. erin mcloughlin joins us from london. what does the discovery mean? >> this means that beyond any reasonable doubt, they have, in fact, found the remains of richard iii. it means we have more clues as to how he died. we know that he was 32 years old when he rode into the battle of bosworth. we know that he likely died due to blunt trauma to the back of his head. scientists think his naked body was strewn over a horse and carried to a shallow and ill fitted grave and tossed inside without any shroud or coffin. we have a better idea of what richard iii looked like. scientists have used 3-d printing to make a reconstruction of his face. i got to take a look at in thtt morning and speak to one of the experts response bl fible for pg the pace. >> very difficult to tell. we had to use references from the skull and references from contemporary portraits. >> the facial construction of the face itself is pretty accurate, because it's based on the skull? >> absolutely. yes. the structure, the cusculptu
's go on over to erin with more. >> reporter: thanks, rene. these forced budget cuts would also lead to less money for public health problems as well as less research for the international health. just this morning the president said, quote, hundreds of thousands of americans will lose access to primary care and preventive care like flu vaccinations and cancer screenings and the cuts to mental health funding will leave 373,000 americans left untreated. now, that might mean scaling back on youth violence prevention programs. the politicians on both sides of the aisle want to see more of after that shooting in newtown. on top of that, the agriculture department also thinks our food supply might be at risk, that the food inspectors would have a 15-day furlough, which means no safety check on meat, poultry, or eggs. stores can't sell unchecked meat. and so for our viewers that would mean a lot less protein in the supermarket for weeks. tom vilsack says forced cuts would result in a loss of two billion pounds of meat, three billion pounds of poultry and 200 million pounds of eggs. vilsack
